Paracas and Huacachina from Lima with Ballestas Islands and Sand Boarding
US$ 119.00
Overview
The coastal and desert regions outside Lima offer a world of outdoor adventure far from the city, but complex bus systems—and, for some visitors, a language barrier­—make exploring a challenge. On this full-day tour, travel in comfort from your Lima hotel and hit Paracas and Huacachina with ease. Spot native marine life in the Paracas National Reserve and try sandboarding on South America’s largest dunes.
What to Expect

Get picked up in the morning at your central Lima accommodation, transfer to the coastal town of Paracas by direct bus, and hop aboard a speedboat. The adventure begins as you zip out across the waves to the Ballestas Islands in the Paracas National Reserve.

On arrival, watch native marine species including birds, penguins, and sea lions in their natural habitat. Your informative guide provides insight into the animals’ behavior and environment while you capture the scenery on camera.

Return to Paracas and continue to Huacachina, a remote oasis in the Ica Desert and home to the biggest dunes in South America. Zoom across the sand by dune buggy and give sandboarding a try. With your powerful buggy to help you reach the top of the dunes, you’ll save plenty of energy for sandboarding. 

Depart Huacachina and return in comfort to your Lima accommodation, where your tour ends.

Unfortunately you’re not allowed to swim in the oasis, I believe there is a hotel with a pool you can use though
